Turkey has held a cargo plane carrying 1.5 tons of gold from Ghana to Dubai, reportedly for its failure to present necessary documents.
The Turkish aircraft had landed in Istanbul's Atatürk Airport on January 1 to refuel and change personnel, Turkey’s Hurrietdailynews
reported on Sunday.
The starting point and the destination of the plane is not clear yet but the report said it may have departed from Algeria and was headed for another country.
The aircraft has reportedly been locked up and sealed for security reasons.
